Full Line-up Announced for This is Tomorrow Festival
The full line-up for This is Tomorrow has been revealed, with the festival set to welcome a host of rock and indie artists to Newcastle this spring.
Taking place from Friday 24 – Sunday 26 May (Bank Holiday Weekend), 2019’s edition sees the festival up sticks and move to its new, larger home at Exhibition Park.
With tickets already selling fast following the headliner announcements earlier this year, organisers have today revealed that Smiths icon Johnny Marr and chart-topping Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi have been added to the Sunday line-up, headlined by Stereophonics.
Meanwhile, shoegaze pioneers Ride have also been confirmed to perform at the event, making a welcome addition to the Saturday 25th line-up, which already boasts Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, plus The Vaccines, Editors and Glasvegas.
Other new additions include Yonaka, Marsicans, Cattle & Cane, The Snuts and Lauran Hibberd and many more.
Hot on the heels of his last critically acclaimed album, Call the Comet, Johnny Marr, the man behind the ground-breaking guitar sounds of The Smiths, recently announced a global tour and North East fans will now get to see him in action with thousands of fellow revellers in the beautiful outdoor setting of Exhibition Park.
Meanwhile, Lewis Capaldi continues to achieve mainstream success, building on his UK number one hit single Someone You Loved. The super talented 22-year-old is set to unveil his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, on 17 May, just before This is Tomorrow, and fans will get a unique chance to see him in action before he rockets to global fame.
Speaking about the new additions to the This is Tomorrow line-up, Festival organiser, Steve Davis, said: “This is Tomorrow is all about pushing the boundaries of what is possible. We promised more heavyweight acts and we have delivered.
“We’ve been working on getting the Sunday line-up right for some time now, and having Stereophonics, Johnny Marr and Lewis on the same bill is unbelievable.
“We were around when Ride first broke back in the early 90s and we’re delighted to add them to the Saturday leg alongside Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.”
